Reviews - What do customers think about A Tale of Two Cities (Naxos AudioBooks)?
Wonderful! Jul 6, 2007
I really enjoyed this recording of A Tale of Two Cities. The reading is masterful. I will issue one warning--I bought this for a family car trip and quickly found that this recording (and maybe most Dickens) are not for the casual listener. It seems to help to have some experience with literature in general and/or with Dickens's style specifically. It wasn't easy for some members of my family to follow by ear.
I love this novel, though, and this presentation is quite good.
